Jerry Hughes didn't complain about his left wrist during the season but a few weeks back had surgery to fix a problem with it. Following the surgery, he had to wear a yellow cone around his entire forearm to prevent it from being injured again. He shared this picture on Instagram:

The struggle is so real over here

Now several weeks removed from the surgery, Hughes has the cone off and shared a picture of the gnarly scar on Twitter with a thankful caption.

In a down year for the defense as a whole, Hughes managed five sacks and 52 tackles. We saw a few years ago how much a sore wrist impacted Mario Williams. It looks like Hughes will return 100% in 2016.
